Apart from Allen keys and a cable cutter, what other tools will I need for installing a Dura Ace 7800 groupset? Going on a new frame, so no component removal required. Thanks![/quote][/list]

  • Thanks guys. Not sure on the installation as it hasn't arrived yet, it's a new Felt AR-1, integrated headset if that helps?

    Any suggestions on BB tools?

  • I've got this set of tools that's more than enough for installing a groupset. Apart from the headset (although I don't know what's involved with integrated headsets)

    The headset is usually pre-fitted with frames. Otherwise you need a headset press...
  • That sounds like a job for the LBS.

    Have you bought the DA7800 new? I got the bottom bracket tools with mine when I bought one.
    As for the headset, if it's not fitted, pop it down to your LBS. Doesn't take long to do. Only paid £15 for mine to be done, and have the steerer tube cut down.
  • The Felt AR1 uses a drop-in fully integrated headset, the only part of it that may require a tool is the crown race seating tool and also a cutting guide to cut the steerer to the desired length.

    I would also reccomend getting a torque wrench, even if its only one of the ritchey torque key's as the satpost clamp on the AR1 is pretty delicate and has to be tightened to the right torque value (5-7Nm If I remember correctly), the ritchey torque key is 5Nm.

    Also, make sure that you do not use any carbon grease or anything like that on the seatpost. The carbon will absorb it and swell up, making removing the post a nightmare.

    Apart from that just the above mentioned tools :)
